Donata Oertel

Donata Oertel is an electrophysiologist. Her work on brain slices has shown how individual neurons serve the auditory system, how the properties of neurons enable mammals to determine where sounds arise and what they mean. She received her BA at UCLA, her PhD at UC Santa Barbara, and was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Wisconsin and then at Harvard Medical School. She has been a member of the faculty of the University of Wisconsin since 1981.
